Tenuta Caparzo:
The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 190

Purple juju fruits and a hint of herbaceousness lead into a very easy and soft palate that is smooth with blue and black berries. Fresh and even a bit bright.

Candied dark berry flavors and a little smokey and herbal. The finish was a bit vinegary for me.

Initial “heavy,” “stinky” nose blows off after a few minutes. A “fresh” one replaces it showing some strawberry, mint, maybe, some citrus. No big blast of fruit on entry, but there is noticeable red berry hints. Very nice, not overwhelming acid. Some hints of earthiness. Fairly stiff tannin sneaks in on the back of the palate. Good wine and one that will match well with just about any hearty meal.

Solid notes of grilled meat over firm black cherry. Brooding and muscular. More lean black cherry on the palate with some smoke and leather. Grippy, fine-grained tannins and a bit disjointed at this stage, but with balanced components. Finishes with nice length and lingering notes of sweet leather and sandalwood.

Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy red, with accents of underbrush and tobacco lending nuance, followed by a spicy finish. The dense tannins suggest this is built for the long haul. Best from 2016 through 2030.

Caparzo’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive. It boasts serious depth, nuance and complexity. Smoke, licorice, spices, black cherries and plums all develop in the glass, supported by firm, beautifully integrated tannins. This is a solid Brunello with plenty of upside for the next decade, if not longer. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa boasts a deep dark core of fruit. Ripe black cherries tar leather and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge from this resonant expressive Brunello. In 2006 La Casa shows plenty of muscle but without abandoning the house s medium-bodied style. Anise and menthol reappear on the creamy generous close. This is a beautiful deceptively medium-bodied Brunello from Caparzo. In particular I admire the way the wine turns minerally on the finish. The Vigna La Casa spent 36 months in Slavonian and French oak casks but of a slightly smaller size than those used for the straight Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

Der Brunello «Montluc» hat eine intensiv rubinrote, glänzende Farbe mit Granatreflexen. In der Nase präsentiert er sich wuchtig mit allerlei verschiedenen Aromen. Am Anfang riecht man Veilchen sowie kleine, rote Früchte. Man erkennt auch Unterholz, aromatisches Holz, einen leichten Vanille-Geschmack und Konfitüre, gefolgt von Kaffee-Noten. Am Gaumen empfindet man einen warmen, vollen Körper mit Dichte. Das Finale ist langanhaltend mit gut definierten Tanninen. Der Brunello «Montluc» kann dank seiner Herkunft sehr lange gelagert werden, wobei er von der Flaschenlagerung profitiert und mit der Zeit qualitativ zulegt.

Sehr komplexes und warmes Bouquet. Reife Kirschen, Gewürze und die typische Brunellonote. Im Gaumen sehr kräftig aber geschmeidig, sehr aromatisch mit reifen Gerbstoffen im Finale.

Wohlriechendes Bukett nach frisch geschnittenen Blumen, mineralisch, Lakritze und saftige schwarze Kirschen finden sich sehr schön zusammen in diesen eleganten, vollkommenen und makellosen Brunello. Nach einer Weile im Glas gewinnt der Wein an Kraft, wobei sich die Tannine sehr elegant und finessenreich präsentieren. Subtile Andeutungen von nachklingenden Eichennoten in einem bemerkenswerten tadellosen Abgang. Dies ist eine fantastische Leistung von Talenti.

Dunkles Rubinrot. Würziges, vielschichtiges Bouquet. Finessenreicher, klassischer Brunello mit reichen Aromen nach dunklen Beeren. Abgerundete Tannine und eine feine Säure machen diesen Wein zu einem idealen Essensbegleiter. Dunkle Früchte, dicht, schöne Tannine, kräftig und lang im Abgang.
